Target Coupon Policy

Saavy Couponers Save Bundles by Understanding Target's Coupon Policy

Target Corp.

I received the following coupon policy from the Target corporate office. It is pretty straight forward and easy to understand. The following email outlines Target's coupon policy as of July 2012.

Manufacturer and Target Coupons

These guidelines apply to all coupons accepted at Target (Color Checkout Coupons, Internet Coupons, Mobile Coupons, Mailed Coupons, Coupons from Newspapers and Magazines, etc.).

  • Target accepts one Manufacturer Coupon and one Target Coupon for the same item (unless prohibited by either coupon).
  • Target reserves the right to accept, refuse, or limit the use of any coupon.
  • Limit of four identical coupons per household, per day (unless otherwise noted on coupon).
  • All valid coupons should be presented to the cashier during checkout.
  • Item purchased must match the coupon description (brand, size, quantity, color, flavor, etc.).
  • Coupon amount may be reduced if it exceeds the value of the item after other discounts or coupons are applied.
  • Target does not give cash back if the face value of a coupon is greater than the purchase value of the item.
  • All applicable sales taxes are paid by shoppers at the full value of the item.

Internet (Print-at-Home) Coupons:

  • Target accepts valid internet coupons that contain a clear bar code that can be scanned.
  • Target does not accept internet coupons for free items with no purchase requirements.

    Mobile Coupons:

    • Shoppers can receive Target Mobile Coupons by texting COUPONS to 827438 (TARGET).
    • Message and data rates may apply. See site for full details.
    • To redeem, simply show your coupon bar code to the cashier. With one simple scan, all applicable coupons are applied.

    Buy One Get One Free Coupons (BOGO):

    • BOGO coupons cannot be combined (i.e. you cannot use two BOGO coupons on two items and get both for free). Unless stated otherwise on the coupon, the use of one Buy One Get One Free coupon requires that two of the valid items are presented at checkout of which one item will be charged to shoppers and the second item will be discounted by its full retail price.
    • A second cents-off coupon of the same type cannot be redeemed towards the purchase price of the first item.
    • If a Target BOGO coupon is used, one additional manufacturer coupon may be used on the first item.
    • If a Manufacturer BOGO coupon is used, one additional Target coupon may be used on the first item.


    Returns of items purchased using Manufacturer Coupons may receive coupon value returned in the form of a Target GiftCard.


    • Coupons are void if copied, scanned, transferred, purchased, sold, prohibited by law, or appear altered in any way.
    • Target regularly monitors the Coupon Information Corporation (CIC) website for counterfeit coupons. Target does not accept counterfeit coupons.
    • Target can't accept coupons from other retailers, or coupons for products not carried in the Target stores.
    • Some items may not be available at all stores.
    • Target does not accept expired coupons.
    • Target does not accept Canadian coupons in our US stores.
